that truly take their displays to the next level. Equipped with magnetic mounting across the board, taking your screen with you just became extra easy. Because of this, the display can easily be used both at home and on the go, making it my choice for a second monitor. So what’s all this fuss about? Espresso Displays come in two form factors, a 13” and 15” model, which hooks up to your laptop with a single USB-C (for both power and data) and provides an entire additional screen from which to work. Double the real estate on your laptop, work from your phone, or plug any HDMI device into it. This visual upgrade comes in a package that is only 5mm thick! It’s seriously thin, and the 15-inch model weighs just over 2 pounds, making it ultra-portable and easy to set up anywhere. Other important numbers that you might want to know? The resolution on the display is 1920 x 1080, giving the 15-inch model a PPI of about 141. It has a max brightness of 300 nits, a contrast ratio of 800:1, and a 60Hz refresh rate. It’s no Retina Display, but as a second screen it still looks great and draws much less power than a 4K display, so you can actually power it from your laptop for extended periods. The displays (and accessories) are designed with an Apple aesthetic in mind. Aluminum and glass are the featured materials, which will fit in with any MacBook or modern laptop. Espresso Displays even included the connections on the lower right side of the display, to most closely match MacBook’s port orientation on the back left.
